Resistol Double X cowboy hat
This vintage hat was made by Resistol in the 1950s. It is rare to come across these early Resistol westerns, and rare to find cowboy hats like this with a bound brim. As you can see from the fade line, it originally had a mid-with ribbon, much wider than usually found on westerns of this era. It has the early Resistol Western liner (Before westerns became Resistol’s bread and butter) and a brown leather sweatband. It was originally sold by Wolf Brothers of Omaha, Nebraska. It is a size 7-1/4.

  1. I have one I just inherited. Never worn. With this XdoubleX marking. Also has the “if you want to duplicate” statement. Original box with sales tag on hat and on box for $21.50 brand new. Also has a 3 color tag on the inside of the hat that says, “You have just purchased most comfortable hat made – a Resistol Self comforming hat. This exclusive inner band is suspended so that it conforms to your headshape – providing instant comfort and proper fit. No other hat has it! Flex the inner band. See how it floats free from the hat”. The box also has a handle taped to the back of the top of the box for something. Not sure what. Western black pinch front. Orange and black satin liner.
